While many have been lounging at beaches and tackling moguls on the slopes, the Community Partners of Dallas team was in the final stages of selling tickets for their Chick Lit Luncheon featuring Katie Holmes at the Hilton Anatole on Friday, April 13.
They were also looking ahead to Saturday, May 12, when they’ll be holding their fourth annual yCPD Field Day at The Rustic, where adult beverages are in hand as well as noodle tossing.
Donning sunglasses and sunscreen, six-person teams compete in such “field day activities.” Oh, the memories of last year’s egg races, cookie and cup flippings, candy straw sucking, and wheelbarrow, three-legged and puzzle relays.
And this year Camp Counselors… or rather Event Co-Chairs Sarah and Colin Philips have added Apex Clearing as the presenting sponsor.
According to CPD President/CEO Paige McDaniel, “As an ongoing supporter of the event and of Community Partners of Dallas, we are truly grateful for their commitment to serving the more than 20,000 abused and neglected children we serve each year. By coming in at this key sponsorship level, Apex Clearing is not only helping us to elevate the event, but even more importantly helping us bring hope and healing to countless children.”
After you’ve got your team put together and sponsored, start coordinating your team uniforms and working on those tans. Team registration is limited to sponsored teams only right now. If there’s any room left come May, then non-sponsored six-packs can register.
